Hope

hope that no matter what difficulties arise in family, health, or finances, a family can survive it and get to the other side. Don't ask me to answer 'how' in one response, rather it's an evolving idea. Solutions present themselves as you go along the path. As you seek the thing it is you want to achieve, so will an idea come to you. I do not attribute it to a god or a religion, though I may have one or both of those. This is life. Hope. Live with me,...

Renewed 

This is vulnerability 
Knowing even with past hurts, a person can love again and be different 
Second chances exist 
People do change 
And rebuilding is possible

A Heart So Badly Hung, Won

Ma vie a hymnes et il a des bandes sonores, ce serait la bande sonore ...
Endormie
Cheveux mouillés
Bras repliés
Retrouvée fenêtre ouverte
L'air
Par la fenêtre
Pour que l'Amour me quitte
En dormant j'ai rêvé
Des milles lianes
Pagayé,
Pagayé
Pour que l'Amour me quitte
Réveillée
La lumière pâle
Des murs de l'hôpital
Trop aimer c'est pas normal
Un coeur si mal
Accroché,
Décroché
Pour que l'Amour me quitte
Amour

Oh Careless Love...

I've found it. I've got the answer to the problems of relationships in the world. Maybe not all, but a most particular kind. You know, the pesky annoying, should vs want, wonderful romance? The answer that would make Dr. Laura Schlessinger sing with enthusiasm because it will keep us out of the pitfalls of hurting people because we fell in love with the "wrong person" or at the "wrong time" and brought kids into it. Helen Fisher reminds us anti depressants take away sex drive. "Everybody knows that," she says. And we are prescribing them for long durations of time, increasingly. What they also do is "kill your ability to fall in love and stay in love. When you drive up serotonin in the brain, which is what anti depressants do, you are suppressing the dopamine circuits. The dopamine circuits are the circuits associated with elation, obsessive thinking and feelings of romantic love. And again, when you kill the sex drive you no longer have orgasms, and when you no longer have orgasms you no longer have the rush of oxytocin and vasopressin associated with attachment." Winning? 

All we need to do to avoid the pain and inconvenience of love is to not have it. And, there's a pill for that. No more lover's quarrels. No more adultery or bad timing. We can all become stoic and indifferent. Our children can see us always being practical and going through the motions of life dependably. Without the tyrannical waves of falling in and out of love, or creating divorces and infidelities. The traditional families' magic pill is here! We can raise children who feel more stable, less tossed by the currents of an adult's romantic love interests, or hell, even their own. Don't forget the side benefits of not being depressed, or feeling any other real human drive or emotion fully for that matter. 

And in taking all of that away, do you realize, that's exactly what we don't need...

"the enemy of love is not hate, it's indifference"
